We've searched far and wide to uncover the rarest relics to ever bless the Pokemon Trading Card Game. Here is our list of the Top 10 Rarest Pokemon Cards of All Time!
#10 Espeon Gold Star
Released in the promotional set POP Series 5, Espeon Gold Star is one of the rarest cards to be pulled from a booster pack. POP Series 5 contains 17 cards in total (including Espeon and Umbreon Gold Star), and it is the only POP Series set that contained Gold Star cards. Because POP Series packs are far less common than regular booster packs, this card became one of the rarest and most valuable of its kind.
Value: $700 (PSA Mint)
#9 Pikachu Misprints
Wizards of the Coast went through some tough times as they were attempting to perfect their first set of Pokemon cards. Here are two Pikachu misprint cards that don't typically see the spotlight: Pikachu "E_ition" Misprint and Pikachu Red Cheeks E3 Promo Error Card.
Pikachu E_ition, alternatively called "Ghost Pikachu" or "Phantom Pikachu" among avid collectors, exists due to a manufacturing error that allowed only a portion of the 1st Edition stamp to be printed on the card. How this happened, nobody really knows.
E3 Red Cheeks Misprint is a play on the more well-known Red Cheeks Misprint, where a very small number of the 1999 E3 Pikachu Promos were accidentally given the red cheeks. I still think they shouldv'e just had the red cheeks to begin with, but that's fine.
